The honeymoon is over for kevie and there has been some serious head dropping from the players things are going to get even worse from here.

I would’ve dropped Coates a few times and not because he’s leaving but because he’s been terrible at times. In fact, the only reason I would’ve kept him in the team this long is to stop him leaving but now that’s no longer an issue.This whole "let's drop Coates because he is leaving the club" is probably the most annoying shit I read on this forum on a day to day basis.
Tough one for Kevvie.Isaako can stay in the team in the centres, Arthars had an absolute shocker defensively tonight.
Literally anyone to play fullback ahead of the useless **** we have used all year. I don't care if we have Lodge at 1, it just can't be Isucko.

I wouldn't be dropping Jamayne for making those boo-boos. That's not really something you fix by dropping. But I would be relocating him and trying out other fullbacks. He knows that's been on the cards anyway. Maybe it's been affecting his game. Who knows? He's not a lazy trainer. We can see that. But he consistently makes costly mistakes at fullback.
Centre, I don't think so. Other than his often ineffective defence - which plagues most fullbacks, including his opposite number last night - his biggest deficiency is lack of passing game. He really doesn't have one.
But he has freakish hands and footwork that we don't get to see nearly enough. I'd move him back to the wing and see what happens from there. As long as Walters doesn't bring Niu back because he's worse. Worse on every level. And given he was the second reserve last night, he must be in that queue.
The obvious candidates are Karmichael Hunt, Cobbo and Farnworth. Hunt has pretty much dismissed that, saying he's not fast enough anymore. Maybe he isn't. Cobbo is green and is guaranteed to make mistakes, but might be where we're headed next year. Farnworth is something of an unknown entity. He has a massive fanclub on here, but to be brutal hasn't quite lived up to it. He's scored only 1 try from 10 starts since moving infield this year, and that's not good enough for a strike centre. He's also been dropped by England.
I think it's reasonable to say we've already pissed the season up against the wall so we might as well start sifting through these rookies to see who to keep.
Nope, he was never "in form". His kick returns were good sometimes but he's always had one good play every few weeks/months in him.I'd say he's looking over his shoulder at who will be taking his spot next year.
When the Hynes talk started his form started dropping... once his confidence is gone he's next to useless on the footy field.
Send him back to qcup as a winger / centre and see if he can find a new role, because he's too fragile to handle anything that has a bit of pressure or any sort of competition for places.
Who’s going to do the “one set, boys” finger if Alex goes?Alex Glenn offers nothing out there on the field, not a single thing. He must give a good speech in the huddle because if we are talking about footy, I can't remember the last time he did something that made me get up and cheer.
You must have many people on ignore, then
I thought Cobbo raised question marks last night on if Coates actually is the best option there, but personally feel he should stay in ISC purely because he can play fullback it will be better for him long term then being on the wing even if its 1st gradeI haven't ignored anyone, I just find it a bit humorous. He is the best option we have on the wing, if we put in someone else and they have a shocker, no doubt that player will cop it from all angles by the same people who suggested we drop Coates.
Whether people like it or not, us Brisbane fans are an entitled bunch.

Can't be that bad he's playing originI would’ve dropped Coates a few times and not because he’s leaving but because he’s been terrible at times. In fact, the only reason I would’ve kept him in the team this long is to stop him leaving but now that’s no longer an issue.
If we really need someone at left centre then it has to be either dale copleh or Karmichael hunt.Guess the option is to try Cobbo at FB and bring Coates back in on the wing although personally I would leave Coates out and put Herbie at FB. As to who replaces Herbie in the centres I would give Oates a go as opposed to Isaako who needs a break after last night. Kennedy can replace Flegler if Haas can't back up after origin. Also someone needs to replace Glenn.
